Being a trail runner from up north, entire Yamato scrub area is as good as it gets in south Florida. You can run on pavement, sand or pine straw and all trails eventually lead back to the main walkway. Winding side trails are my favs, running single track over a nice soft surface. No street crossings, cars or noise (maybe a little noise) to distract you.

I hiked this trail with my wife and one year old. The trail entrance is very unmaintained but the trail itself is beautiful with lots of different animals and plants. We saw a back racer snake sunbathing on the side of the paved trail. The fauna on this trail is beautiful and diverse.

The only downside is that that you can hear traffic throughout the trail.

Really nice trail. It’s crazy how different the vegetation is here from Miami. During the winter, you have a lot of pine trees and cactus surprisingly.. there’s a few different trails that meander through each other and you could easily spend over an hour enjoying the different paths.

They have beautiful mushrooms that look like flowers but don’t eat them.

No parking, unmaintained, very little tree cover, along the backside of many factories/warehouses, Hwy 95 noise constantly. But I am spoiled from Colorado and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We hiked this as a couple and hit the yellow trail hair mid concrete path. It looped us around and we hit the end of the concrete and continued to the loop. We had some gear malfunctioning so we will be back. We saw a black snake and a blue heron as well. Lots of cactus with yellow flowers.

I have spent many Januarys in S FL, and have looked for decent walking trails. This is the closest I've come to feeling surrounded by nature without heading to the Everglades. Yes, there is the noise from the nearby parkway but if you go to the trail via the Yamato Nature Preserve, there is the scent of pine and the soft feel of pine needles which line the trail. Farther along the trail is paved, and I wondered if the nature area was here for awhile since it seems paved trails are a thing of the past. The blue lupine trail itself is white sand covered passing through palm groves and across the El Rio levy. And there are blue lupine along the trail. It seems So much of this area is built up. It was nice to find a trail where we could take a very long walk, and feel we were in a natural area. Coordinates for the parking lot: N 26 24 543, W 080 05 803

Nice to walk but the noise of the traffic is terrible.

It was a nice easy hike for all ages. Easy to navigate because of the yellow dots on the polls. Only problem is you can hear the highway the whole time your on the trail.
